Big Bold Question: What Should Business Do About Income Inequality?

November 1, 2016, 11:00 am-12:00 pm

Wealth inequality is one of the major global challenges of the 21st century. Yet many leaders of large corporations are unsure about the role of business in wealth balance, and whether business should take a stance on the subject. At the same time, stakeholders are expecting more of business, examining how companies are approaching living wage commitments beyond compliance and financial incentives for employees, and whether they are helping build an inclusive economy through innovative products and services. Join us to discuss the business implications of growing wealth inequality in both developing and developed economies, and how this issue is affecting different industries.
